[Xapian-devel] Starting to work for xapian

So for replacing this with OpenBSD getopt are we going to statically
compile the newer one and replace the gnu getopt completely (also the
GNU C Library one) and for that I will have to change the files in
xapian-core/common/getopt.cc right?
And also currently the getopt.cc is modified by Olly for compilation
with C++, so what will be the right path for me to go ahead?
I have compiled the source from the bleeding edge git repo and have
also familiarized myself with the usage of gnu getopt by building a
sample application.
